This is the place where a distracted mother will muse.

I discovered tonight that using a hand saw is not only the worlds best arm and shoulder workout, it's also one of the most frustrating activities. Of all time.
Our plum trees were looking terrible, so it was time for them to come down. We decided to cut them by hand (don't ask me why) and use the trunk for the base of a bird feeder. It sounds a little odd, but I think it looks cute... in a rustic kind of way. It also looks like a page right out of the Lorax.
So good bye purple plum trees... we'll have to content ourselves with these pretty little purple flowers, until we can find a better variety of plum to plant in our soon-to-be-orchard.
